Hello Everyone,

Remember a few blog posts ago, I said I wanted to start quilting my own quilts in 2013?  Well, I started yesterday.  After 12 years of customer quilts... I am now focusing on my own.  Believe me, I have a TON of unfinished quilt tops that need quilting.  A good guess would be around 30 tops or so.

The first top to grace the long arm is my Summer Solstice quilt.  This is the one that I am affectionately referring to as "I Am NOT Afraid of color".  It is a Judy Niemeyer pattern and all paper pieced.  

I will be teaching this class in April in Sturbridge, MA.  You can find out the details by clicking here for my schedule.

Some beads and feathers.  So far, I am using all variegated thread and loving it immensely.

The variegated thread that I am using in the green area is called Citrus Cooler, that is the color.

Since I am just starting this quilt, I haven't even rolled it yet, but hopefully it moves along pretty quickly.  I can't wait to finish it up.  

I am using Quilter's Dream Wool batting in this one for something a little different.

Until Next Time...
